Perhaps I'm reading the rumors wrong, but isn't the idea of the E-M1 to include PDAF in addition to CDAF? If so, it seems plausible that the older 43 lenses would be focused PDAF style, or perhaps with some new hybrid algorithm. Just hitting E-5 speed would seem like a big win for Oly for a lot of applications.

No it would not - E-5 was not competitive then (the proof is obvious - it did not sell), and competitors moved on, so it is even less competitive now.

Just matching your own 3-y/o failure at the same price bracket will simply guarantee another failure.

Think about it.

If you don't leapfrog competition with every release, you die, either slowly if you have a very strong brand like Canon, or quickly if you don't.
